Waste Free Parenting Workshops

My 2 hour workshop is broken up into two parts. The first hour is focused on ways in which you can reduce waste with a new baby. It includes discussions around what you do and don't need when having a baby, dealing with household waste and food waste, re-usable alternatives, re-usable products for mum and making up-cycled nappies plus lots more. The second hour of the workshop focuses on cloth nappies, how to wash them efficiently, washing with water restrictions and how to choose which nappies will suit your baby best.

Lets leave a waste free world for our children and grandchildren.

I have created this website to help support you in becoming more waste free at home with your new family.
Often we believe we need to change everything to make a difference, in the long term this is true but in the short term it seems too hard. What we forget is that if we all just make a small seemingly insignificant change every day the results will be hugely significant. It is the old saying...Take care of the penny's and the pounds will look after themselves....

Making decisions as a parent can be difficult

I know it can be very confusing and quite a time consuming decision making decisions when you are having your first baby because there are so many options available, but hopefully after reading through my website guides you will be able to confidently make the right decision or come along to a workshop and get educated.

3500 families attend my workshops around New Zealand      
Over the past year, I have had more than 3500 families attend my workshops around New Zealand. My 2 hour workshop is broken up into two parts. The first hour is focused on ways in which you can reduce waste with a new baby. It includes discussions around what you do and don't need when having a baby, dealing with household food scraps and baby food waste, purchasing less so you have less wastage, re-usable alternatives like breast pads, wipes, food containers, packaging, re-usable products for mum, making up-cycled nappies from old sheets and towels and lots more.
8% - 19% of council domestic waste is made up of disposable nappies
Because many of the council waste audits here in NZ show that between 8% - 19% of their domestic waste is disposable nappies, the second hour of the workshop focuses on cloth nappies, how to wash them efficiently, washing with water restrictions and how to choose which nappies will suit your baby best.
Save around $4000 per child just by using cloth nappies!      
Did you know that if every parent in NZ used just 1 cloth nappy on their baby per day we could prevent 1 Million nappies from going to landfill per week? (*Source Zero waste) They are also far better for your pocket. It is possible to save around $4000 per child just by using cloth nappies!
Cloth Nappy Week.
The Nappy Lady and a team of passionate mums also run Cloth Nappy Week every year which is a highly anticipated annual week long event. For more information click here.
